don't know much about their road bikes, but it looks great. They have the european patent on the mtb "brain" suspension technology - specialized has it on their epics. They licence it to berkwerks for one of their bikes. I saw of a lot of their frames at the transalp mtb race last year. great geometry and nice rides.

It's one of the best carbon frame with reasonable price.
made in TAIWAN by TRIGON, very famous carbonfiber specialist.
May be you can ask for some discout.

Velocity, are you suggesting I should buy a tried and known frame?

I'm not too experienced in shopping for a frame, what do I need to look for in a carbon frame?
